    Visite the place in a hot day in June. After walking 2.5km from Ukko Luosto parking area, we were at cafe area where tickets (22€) could be bought...and some fresh donuts and coffee/soda could be purchased. The tours are staring at every hour between 11am-5pm, so you need to be there on time. Our guide was a young gentleman Olle. He was very knowable on different amethysts and guided us through the creation process all the way to actual mining. The mine is in open air, so uf you expect to walk into a cool mine tunnel, you will ve disappointed. I personally liked the tour a lot and naturally found a small amethyst. If you are not lucky to find your own, you may buy some from the store.

    Wild reindeers are absolutely beautiful! Nothing like the ones that I have even seen in the Uk.

    Really worth a visit, the keener was lovely and gave a good history/background about the reindeers, we went on a sleigh ride through the forest, it was absolutely beautiful!

    Happy go lucky short wandering. What a beautiful spot to see, must come back during summertime. Two fireplaces: a cottage and an open fire place. Stairs take down to the fell, but unfortunately were out of use during wintertime.

    I went on an excursion looking for the Aurora Borealis in nearby woodland and it was the most exhilarating and wonderful experience. I had been wanting to see them for a long time and they were out in their full glory. The leaders were fantastic throughout the trip. They were very knowledgeable and they made me feel very welcome. All in all a great tip and one I highly recommend.

    We are a family of 5 and hired Pascal for a forest ski adventure. We were treated to a 5 kilometer tour of the national forest, crossing the cross country ski trials numerous times. Pascal stopped often to ensure all was well and to give us a bit of local knowledge of the environment.

    A stop at Rykimakero hut for sausages and more stories was the icing on the cake. (Best lesson of the week. Sausages must be 86% meat, anything less is no good, thanks Pascal)

    We found Pascal extremely engaging, entertaining and knowledgeable. Truly a highlight of our trip to Luosto.

    Our only regret is not doing the northern lights snow shoe tour we had planned. At least we have something to look forward to when we return.

    My wife and I went to this ice skating park one evening in Jan. Antti is the man in charge and he is really helpful and attentive. We met some friendly Finnish local people who have us free lessons and a 'crash course' into ice hockey. High quality equipment including helmets and knee pads were included and a free hot drink. Ice skating on a frozen lake under the northern lights surrounded by beautiful arctic forest is something that would recommend this to anyone in Luosto. The rink is less than 5 minutes walk from all the hotels and is easy to find, just follow the lights and signs by the lake.
